    Whenever I am in Mendoza, I make this excursion. Rappelling within a mine, with the Jesuit ruins outside, excellent food and not to mention the care guides, make for me an inevitable experience.

    It is not widespread and is really a pity, because you have to go. It is a different, unique, exciting experience... make a time and go. They will not regret... and will get great photos!

After a small 4 x 4 ride, we agreed to one of the galleries, the ride enters mountain, all of them with helmets and a very professional guide. then, another way 4 x 4 until another mouth mine, the most ancient... is certainly highly recommended, both for big guys if they concur only adults, have the option to Rappelling into the mine and promenade stretches a little more

    Excellent this place. We made the excursion to the mines with rappel and the truth that is not to be missed. In addition to a very good price we ate an excellent very full roast, served as a few Kings (includes everything and it can be repeated: Chori, sausage, roast, empty, salad, grilled potato, homemade bread, soft drinks). There had missed a glass of red wine only.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
